Go Blue for diabetes!

November is American Diabetes month and Nov. 14 is World Diabetes Day, an annual observance marked all across the globe.

The international “Go Blue” campaign encourages supporters to do just that for the occasion: Dress in blue and go blue at home by putting a blue bulb in your porch light or lighting a blue candle. Let it shine!

“Going Blue” is something everyone at U-M already know how to do well!

The challenge

Nearly 1 in 2 American adults has diabetes or prediabetes.

  • 84 million adults have prediabetes
  • 90 percent of them are not aware of their risk for diabetes

Do you know if you are at-risk for Type 2 diabetes?

Take the ADA Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test.

Find out your diabetes risk in just 60 seconds.

Get started!

The JDRF and ADA provide helpful resources for you, your family and your patients to learn more about and to help better manage diabetes. Stay informed, get involved and GO BLUE!
